While Cyberpunk 2077 endured a difficult lifespan following its 2020 release, things are finally looking up for the Keanu Reeves friendship simulator, with the Edgerunners anime and the announcement of a sequel convincing many to give it another chance.

A barrage of mods has been helping to make the Night City experience more interesting than ever before for these new and returning players, bringing everything from apartment-dwelling cats to killer takedowns and tradable stocks to the game.

Now, a new mod has arrived that might be of interest to those who find some of the advertisements that pop up everywhere you look as you traverse the city a bit disconcerting or tasteless, adding in replacements for them that are a little less in-your-face.

Have you ever wanted walking around Night City to be less of an assault on the senses?

The mod in question is called ‘Disgusting Ads Redone - Lore friendly’ and is the work of modder zyd232, whose previous work has made Night City’s glass less blurry and cleaned up its water.

This time, they’ve decided to add in slightly less terrifying versions of some of the game’s adverts, ensuring that you’re slightly less likely to lose your lunch if you decide to take a walk around the metropolis.

Remember the infamous ‘Bottoms up!’ ad that always seems to play when you enter Megabuilding H10’s elevator to head off on an adventure?

Well, now it’s a relatively harmless promo for beer that should cause any trouble unless you’re allergic to dudes with gormless expressions.

Also affected are the likes of body implant ads and ones that feature toilet humour, with each receiving a revision that might be a bit plain, but shouldn’t lead you to want to glue your eyes shut.

There are two versions of the mod, with an ‘all in one’ variant replacing all of the adverts and separate files available for those who only have issues with a few specific ones and don’t mind the rest.

That said, regardless of which version is being downloaded, NimRain’s ‘Material and Texture Override’ is a necessity in order to get things working as they should.

Regardless of whether you’ve already solved the issue by investing in some expensive Kiroshi optics that make you invulnerable to advertising, make sure to follow us for updates on the wacky world of Cyberpunk 2077 modding and info on the game’s upcoming Phantom Liberty expansion, which is set to launch in 2023.
